Women in Defence Award for The 5% Club’s Sam Healy

On Wednesday 1 November, senior people from across industry and the Ministry of Defence (MOD) gathered together to celebrate women in defence.

The event, held at Plaisterers Hall in London, was the second annual Women in Defence Award dinner, and we’re delighted to report that our Trustee of The 5% Club and Group Corporate Responsibility Director at QinetiQ, Dr Sam Healy, was announced the winner of the ‘Special Award’ category.

Women in Defence UK Awards promote the value of women in defence. It aims to encourage women to succeed authentically, share experience, build networks and encourage talent at all levels to join the defence sector.

Sam said: “I’m so proud to be recognised for my work on The 5% Club and grateful to all the people I’ve worked with to make it such a success. It’s really special to receive this award from Women in Defence; an important movement that exists to support and encourage gender diversity across defence. It was fantastic to see such endorsement given to Women in Defence from both the MOD and industry.”

Well done, Sam!
